The Jr. and Sr. Heat basketball development clinics are a great way to train during the fall to assist players in their preparation for the upcoming school season and the spring club season. [Registration [Download PDF] will stay open until Friday September 7] These sessions will be run by the UBC Okanagan Heat coaching staff, the Jr/Sr Heat coaching staff and our UBCO athletes.
The sessions will focus on skill development and fundamentals, including shooting, ball handling and passing. They will also focus on basic offensive and defensive principles to give players a greater understanding of the game, using concepts that are taught at the U SPORT level.
There is also a compete section in addition to the Sunday skills academy. Participants will be able to implement the fundamentals that they are learning in the skill sessions in a competitive game environment each week. The session for both the Jr and Sr programs comprises 90 minutes of skills academy and 45 minutes of competition.
